The printing I have is old, by editors, Edna Johnson, Evelyn R. Sickels, and Carrie E. Scott. Printing date not shown, but copyright dates mentioned are 1935 (Johnson, Sickels), and 1948 (Johnson, Scott). The dedication is "To Carrie E. Scott who was planning a revision of this book even in her last illness."
We picked this book up at a garage sale years ago for twenty-five cents. It seems very comprehensive containing nursery rhymes, fables, folk tales, myths and legends, tales of heros, fantasy, sacred writings, biography, travel and history, and poetry. We'll use this here and there. I notice that the previous owner checked things off. Maybe we'll check things off as we go!
